At the height of the refugees crisis invented by the Turkish pariah Erdogan and his bosses in NATO, the mainstream media launched a systematic campaign to show exaggerated and insanely large numbers of refugees are fleeing Syria into Europe.
The narrative was they are fleeing from their state out of fears from their own children and relatives in the Syrian armed forces, while on the ground the reality was they were fleeing areas infested by terrorists and most of the displaced people sought refuge in Syrian state controlled areas, something the MSM won't tell.
In one of the statistics carried out at that time it was found that up to only 20% of the total refugees who went to Europe were Syrians, the rest were people from all over Asia and Africa and had nothing to do with the Syrian crisis but claimed to be Syrians who lost their documents to get to Europe.
This person is an example.
In a comment I wrote that time about this particular central African person who claimed he was a Syrian refugee despite his features and language and the guys mocking his claim: "Don't get him wrong but the sun was too strong all over the way until he reached Germany."
I'm not saying there was no crisis, but it was a manufactured one, the Erdogan regime erected tens of thousands of tents across the Syrian borders weeks before anything happened in Syria, recruited and radicalized tens of thousands of Turks, central Asians and Chinese Muslims 'Uyghurs' in his armies of radicals'.
